At Leech & Co, we don’t work for insurance companies. For over 20 years, we have worked solely for injured Claimants. We have a long and successful track record of fighting for, and securing, the compensation our clients deserve. Meet the team:
Matthew Connery qualified as a Solicitor in 1999 and specialised in Personal Injury cases. Matthew has dealt with many complex cases involving serious injuries and significant financial losses. Over the years, he has recovered millions of pounds of compensation for innocent accident victims.
Outside of work, Matthew is a keen runner (very slow), plays 5-a-side football (very badly and slowly) and tries to keep up with much younger people at Bootcamp twice a week (very unsuccessfully). He also enjoys going for hikes with his Beagle, Frankie, although most of the time it’s not clear who is taking who for a walk. Matthew also volunteers at Stretford Foodbank once a week.
Claire Taylor is a legally qualified Litigation Executive and is head of the Personal Injury department at Leech & Co. Claire has worked solely for injured Claimants for over 15 years and is vastly experienced in dealing with all types of Personal Injury cases.
Outside of work, Claire is a keen runner (Claire is a member of Blackburn Road Runners running club and ran the Manchester Marathon in 2019), she has competed in the Great North Swim in Windermere, is a very keen walker and she competes in horse trials with her horse, Noah. Claire is also a passionate and (very good) chef. She has completed cookery courses at college, enjoys baking and has cooked for charity events.
